Over the past four months I have met some really incredible people thanks to social media. In particular Twitter has opened the door to meeting some truly amazing folks in the events business. The new relationships developed were made possible only through the social media arena as I would have probably never met most of them otherwise.
On Twitter I participate in a hashtag group called #eventprofs. For those of you not familiar with hashtags click here for more information. This group meets twice weekly for one hour at a time and we discuss events industry “hot topics.” The conversation is always engaging, sometimes controversial but usually productive…. and the bonus is the friendships evolving from these interactions! Here is a video I recently created to extend my appreciation to my new friends for adding value to my life:
If you are an Event Professional, or have an interest in this business, we would love to have you participate in the #eventprofs group. For more information on us please visit the following locations:
The video created above, while certainly driven by my creativity, was made possible by a wonderful application called “Animoto.” If you have an interest in creating fun media files this is a “must see” for you. Check it out! The application is very user friendly and intuitive.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and will circle back to you next week!
